The Sound of Ghosts are an Americana roots musical collective hailing from LA and who play a combination of traditional front porch Americana, folk-laden melodies and vintage rock’n’roll. Lead single Train to Nowhere is an upbeat folky song with driving guitars, catchy hooks and story-telling. Showcasing the band’s signature sound of fiddle-fueled melodies and soaring harmonies, accompanied by a powerful trumpet solo. Originally inspired after watching two Netflix documentaries ‘Big Easy Express’ and ‘Festival Express’, vocalist and ukulele-ist (is that a word?) Anna Orbison says: “this song is a perfect mix of what we do best”. As opposed to “this song is a perfect mix of what we do worst” – which could apply to the new Jonas Brothers record.
